I have 38 viruses

On the 2nd Tuesday of every month, Microsoft releases a free tool to address virus infections. The tool is called Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool. It is usually downloaded in an infected computer's hard drive but if this cannot be done, the tool can be loaded into a USB stick or thumbdrive on another computer then inserted into the infected computer's USB port to be run. Microsoft also has online tools to scan and remove malware. For more information and download go to .... http://www.microsoft.com/security/pc-security/malware-removal.aspx

My Acer aspire 4520 windows vista laptop is

Hi there, this may work, try this. Take off laptop battery, remove power cord, turn laptop upside down. Just take off screws on the covers you see, which let you see HDD, Memory,Wireless card,.... , take off the cover or check on line for service manual for your specific model on how to remove the plastic cover/ covers, which is covering the CMOS battery which is some time wrapped up with yellow tape. Just remove the battery by holding on the white connector which attached to the motherboard with black and red wires. Gently pull from the motherboard. Now without the CMOS battery, connect power cord and turn on the laptop, it should turn on. Now turn off , remove the power cord, check voltage on battery , it should measure very close to 3volt (2.5 to 3.0 volt), otherwise get a new one, connect the battery, put back covers, and now you set a new password.

Hi Tina,

Your battery needs a calibration, follow the instruction below to calibrate the battery.

  1. With Windows Vista, navigate to Control Panel > Performance and Maintenance > Power Options
  2. Click "Change Plan Settings".
  3. Set all tabs to "Never" underneath "On Battery" column.
  4. Click "Change advanced power settings".
  5. Set Sleep > Hibernate after to 0 or Never.
  6. Set Battery > Critical Battery Level to 0.
  7. Click on "OK", then "Save Changes".

This is the only time that we recommend taking the battery all the way down to zero percent. Unplug the ac adapter, and let the battery drain all the way down until the laptop shuts off. Then plug the AC adapter back in, and let it recharge to 100% or where it actually reaches. You may need to repeat the cycle 2-3 times before it actually reaches 100%.

Note: After the calibration is done, change the power options settings back to what it was as they will help you save power. Also, when a power source is available dont run the laptop on battery, it will increase the battery life.
